BEIJING -- China's national bureau of statistics will on Tuesday publish the results of last year's once-a-decade census, Nikkei has learned.

The census, which had been planned for publication in April, is conducted every decade to show details of China's demographic changes. The seventh edition will count the total population of the vast nation, and include data such as age groups, gender, and ethnic distribution.
